Digital branding strategist, Minter Dial facilitates a dynamic conversation about how to tap into one of the biggest missed opportunities for corporations: personal branding. Surprisingly very few CEOs are online, Dial affirms, in a digital business climate where online presence is a critical tool for connecting with customers. “They could be solving so many issues,” Dial comments on the undeveloped potential.
An online presence is just one factor, though. Dial emphasizes the importance of leaders aligning their personal brand with their corporate brand and fostering a work culture in which your employees are your number one fans. “If they ain’t, why are you expecting the community, the customers to come running to you and think, ‘Oh God, you’re great,’ when inside you don’t believe what you’re saying?” Dial asks. “Allow employees to express themselves, but the only way you’re going to get that is if you the leader demonstrate by example.”
Tech expert and branding strategist, Minter Dial shows you how to seize disruption as an opportunity to infuse creativity and fresh energy into your personal and/or corporate brand. Dial’s interactive keynotes are a holistic blend of new tech trends, branding, and digital strategy. From bitcoin to big data, cyber security to genetics, and 3D printing to driverless cars, Dial puts major disruptive forces into context so that you can better understand how they will change your industry and what you will need to do to move forward with your business.

The Last Ring Home, A POW’s Lasting Legacy of Courage, Love, and Honor in World War II by Minter Dial II
The Last Ring Home is the story of Lt Minter Dial’s Annapolis Naval Academy ring, that miraculously made its way home 17 years after he was killed as a POW of the Japanese in WWII. The Last Ring Home is a tribute to Lt Dial, the producer’s grandfather, and all members of the Greatest Generation. It is also a journey of self-discovery, having an impact on the filmmaker, his wider family and many other people in its wake. This story, which took over 25 years of research, illustrates the importance of serendipity and the role of good and bad luck in piecing together a personal history of someone who died 70 years ago. The Last Ring Home is to inspire everyone to uncover their own personal history, to keep a foot in their past and the other in the future, and to be thankful for the tremendous present in which we live, thanks to the sacrifices of the those who fought in WWII.
